The Ice interface of the database now requires Ice encoding version 1.1 (available since Ice 3.5). Please be sure to update your configuration file and also use the latest Slice file (see FAQ page).

08.01.2016:

Starting today, downloading files from the KIT Whole-Body Human Motion Database using the webpage or the Ice interface requires an account. Registration is free and new accounts are active immediately.

05.01.2016:

Since the database now uses regular expressions instead of file extensions for file type detection, the labels of the file types returned by the Ice API have changed. Code that tests for predefined file types should be adapted.

12.11.2015:

All MMM motions in the database will be updated to the latest version of the MMM reference model (4 feet DoF) during the course of the next days. To work with this motions, please ensure that you are using the current version of the model, contained in MMMTools since 09.10.2015.

The KIT Whole-Body Human Motion Database has been presented at the International Conference on Advanced Robotics (ICAR) 2015. You can read the paper here.

Name:INOPRO
Comment:INOPRO aims to develop new, intelligent orthoses and prostheses for the lower and upper extremities (legs and hands) and the necessary human-machine-interfaces to improve the quality of life of the users.

Scientifically, the projects focusses on five aspects:

1. Autonomous adaption to the user and the environment
2. Advanced sensory feedback to enhance safety and trust
3. Compensation of the loss of ability through active support
4. Easy and intuitive control
5. Modularity

KIT leads the research that is concerned with new methods and technologies for realizing personalized hand prosthetics. New mechanisms for exploiting grasp synergies in underactuated hand prostheses will be investigated. With such hands, the majority of grasps needed in activities of daily living can be performed with a minimal number of actuators.
